WEF submitted comments on EPA's recent Clean Water Strategy on September 17. The Strategy is a public forum effort by EPA to articulate areas of regulatory focus needed to, in the words of Administrator Jackson, “see a huge leap forward in water quality as we saw in the 1970’s.” The Strategy listed a number of overall steps to be taken along with underlying information to support these steps. Examples include increasing assessment of waters, protecting pristine waters, and restoring impaired and threatened waters through creative market-based solutions.  No schedule or specific actions were named in the Strategy.
